We'll help you to get the best Brazilian Real exchange rate

We compare the Brazilian Real rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Brazilian Real exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Brazilian Reals page to find a local supplier near you.

Brazilian Real rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Brazilian Real has increased by 2.51% from 4.5043 on the 22nd October to 4.6174 today. This means £750 will buy you R$84.83 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Brazilian Real hit a high of 4.7851 on the 27th November and a low of 4.3857 on the 28th October. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Brazilian Real exchange rate history page.

How do I buy Brazilian Reals?

Using our comparison form at the top of the page, enter the amount of Brazilian Reals you want to buy, select your preferred payment method(s) and click 'Compare Deals'. We'll return a list of UK currency suppliers who are selling Brazilian Reals right now along with their latest exchange rates and delivery information. The results are sorted in order of who is offering the most Brazilian Reals after all fees and delivery charges have been added which means the best deals are always at the top of the table. Choose the supplier you want to order with and follow the link to their website where you can place your order with them directly.

When is the best time to buy Brazilian Reals?

It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy Brazilian Reals. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.

Can I collect my Brazilian Reals in person?

Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect Brazilian Reals from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your Brazilian Reals online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.

How long does Delivery take?

Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local Brazilian Real supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.

Do I have to be at home when my currency is delivered?

No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.

Can I have my Brazilian Reals sent to a different address?

Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.

What happens if the package goes missing during delivery?

All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.

What payment method should I use?

The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.

Are there any limits on the amount of Brazilian Reals I can order?

Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.

Is ordering online safe and secure?

All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.

Am I financially protected if something goes wrong with the supplier?

The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?

What checks does Compare Holiday Money carry out on the listed suppliers?

All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.

Do I need to provide ID or other documents?

It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.

Can I sell back any unused Brazilian Reals?

Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Brazilian Reals for Pounds Sterling.

Can I send money to a bank account in Brazil instead?

Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.

Brazil has one of the strongest economies in the world right now and is one of the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) who have continued to grow throughout the global slowdown and recession. Brazil hosted the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, which means it is guaranteed to be the centre of the world stage for at least the next few years. Brazil is also one of the most popular destinations for teachers holding TEFL qualifications to teach English.

Those visiting Brazil are recommended to compare the exchange rate frequently before they go as they fluctuate from day to day. The average traveller takes about £780 worth of reals (based upon data from 1st of July to 30th of September 2017). This is slightly less than the £730 that visitors were taking back in 2013. You should budget about £130 per day staying in Brazil.

Brazilian Reals are not widely accepted outside of Brazil so if you come home use our currency buy back service to sell any leftover Reals back into Sterling when you return from Brazil and get a much better rate than you would in the high street.

Because of the crime levels in Brazil the FCO recommend that you should only carry small amounts of cash. ATM machines are often tampered with and some cash points have been fitted with an anti-theft device that applies pink coloured ink to the notes of an ATM that has been damaged or tampered with. Pink coloured note will not be accepted in the market and they automatically lose their value. If you withdraw cash at an ATM and it has any sort of pink marks, speak to the bank straight away to get it changed.

British nationals travelling to Brazil in most cases will not need a visa and can enter the country on a tourist visa as long as you can demonstrate that you have enough money for the entirety of your stay, details of your accommodation and evidence of your return journey. It is advised that you ensure that your passport is stamped when you arrive as you could face a fine on departure and you must not lose your immigration landing card as you could also face a fine for a replacement when you leave the country.

Brazil has very strict laws on child trafficking and when travelling with your child as a single parent or guardian you will need additional paperwork and you should also ensure that your passport has at least 6 months on it before travelling from the UK. In addition, Brazil has very strict laws on drug trafficking and if you are caught you could face severe punishments including long term prison sentences in Brazil.

The Brazilian Consulate in London has more advice on travelling and entry requirements to Brazil.
